About Organisation

Elevate Young Minds is a youth driven organisation, that gives young people a platform to act on current global issues. We intensively engage our members in creative volunteering and leadership opportunities, to help them develop innovative approaches to addressing global issues. Supporting the development of emerging artists, entrepreneurs and leaders in Manchester and across the world. We currently operate with a globally shared target of developing 10,000 young Artists, Social Entrepreneurs and Leaders, under the United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals.

We plan to achieve this through different programs delivered by Elevate Young Minds. Our longest running project was the Young Minds Matter program, which started in 2015 at Leeds Beckett University, with 20 local and international artists of different disciplines.

In 2016 we worked with 60 artists at EKA Palace in Lisbon (Portugal), and also prototyped the program in Tanzania with the support of Youth of United Nations Association. In 2017 we worked with over 100 artists at Anjos 70. And in 2018 we implemented YMM in Belgium (Brussels) with participation from 35 artists, as well as in Lisbon at Anjos 70 with over 100 participants.

Other programs that support our developmental agenda of EYM include - Break Dance Manchester’s community solutions, our BAME Paradox Forum, Face Festival, Anarchy Film Festival, and Rotation Dance Exchange.
